We have created activities to accompany the Ready to Read Phonics Plus Big Book: Frog Finds a Home. This book introduces the characters that will be found in many of the Kākano, Tupu, Māhuri and Rākau Ready to Read Phonics Books. This book follows on from the big book: The Boat Race.

We have created 12 follow-up activities to suit a range of abilities.

Activities include using and understanding suffixes, vocabulary activities (English and te reo Māori), a word find, cloze activities, syllable counts, finding the problem and solution, exploring characters, and more.

  • There are also QR codes for students to view videos about the specific instructional foci or about the themes of the text.
  • With initial modelling and scaffolding, these activities are intended to be completed independently to build students’ skills in following instructions and developing fine motor skills and stamina to complete a task.

This resource is intended to accompany the Ready to Read Phonics Plus series. This series is available in all New Zealand schools and on the Tahurangi website (  The activities have been carefully designed to enhance the teaching that occurs in a shared reading context and give independent practice to the skills taught.
